Molecular biology

Our research groups

We use molecular biology to answer questions in basic and applied research. Biochemical processes studied range from protein synthesis and folding to ribozyme catalysis. Medical problems under investigation include amyloid formation, antibiotic resistance, tuberculosis and malaria. We are also developing biotechnology and synthetic biology.

The molecular biology program is lead by Professor Anthony Forster and consists of five research groups. For more information on research projects, click on the websites of these groups.
